A House for Jenny

A house was built for Jenny.  Not sure which is worse, constantly re-threading a needle to change colors, or doing what seems like endless blocks of solid stitching.  I swear that house isn't very big, but it seemed to take forever to stitch.  Or maybe its just Princess Annie not leaving me alone for more than 10-15 minutes at a time. Either she wants out, or wants to play with her favorite squeaky ball, or she just wants some loving.  And of course I do whatever she wants.


Poor picture quality, but I guess that's the difference between a phone and a huge digital SLR camera, and the price to pay for laziness.  I've added in a few colors - I didn't want pink goose legs, or a pink brick chimney.

I've been waking up pretty early most of the time.  Usually I'd just read some then try to go back to sleep.  Nope, the Princess has decided that if I'm going to keep her awake by having a light on, then she can go outside.  She goes back up to bed, while I just sigh and make a pot of coffee and wait for the sunrise.  The one day I tried to go back to bed, she had stolen my spot.


These sunrise pictures were taken a couple of weeks ago, since then we've had nothing but fog, or as its called in San Diego, marine layer.  You can just barely see a thin layer above the lights.


Can't believe the moon showed up in this picture, and some moon phase experts will probably be able to figure out when I took the pictures.


Back to working on school stuff.  Just one more project to finish up for my Human Resources class, and then its done.  Its only taken me 4 months, which means I have 2 months to do 2 more classes.  Eep!

Oh the Jenny Bean piece is just marvelous! I love how it's coming out! Sorry you've been waking up so early. Our furry friends do take advantage when that happens, don't they? Makes it hard to go back to sleep for sure. Good luck getting all the classwork done.

Annie has you figured out, doesn't she? Your stitching looks great Mindi. I need to get back to "rules" soon.

Such a pretty piece, Mindi!! And thanks for sharing those lovely photos. Wish I could see them in person. I've been waking up way too early lately, too--not much fun, is it?

great job on getting the moon in that pick!

the house looks great. even if it feels like it's taken longer than usual. :)

Stitched houses seem to take almost as long as real houses do to build. :) Your Jenny Bean piece is so pretty, I love it! Princess Annie looks very cozy in your spot. :) Good luck with school.

Jenny is really pretty - a tip? Thread a needle for each color - then you don't have to stop to thread; just pick up the next color. Ah - our fur babies rule the roost, don't they?
